Because you just can’t keep a game this epic to one platform.
Either developers are looking to expand the horizons, or the Wii U is starting to lose some of its platform exclusivity (see: Rayman Legends). In any case, Tecmo Koei announced that Ninja Gaiden 3: Razor’s Edge will be making its way to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 platforms on April 2.
This production was created “from the ground up” and boasts the most action-packed thrills for diehard fans and newcomers alike. Ninja Gaiden has been known for its brutal difficulty level, which will now be expanded with a variety of new pieces of bonus content, three new characters and three times as many Ninja Trial missions. In addition to featuring a robust online mode, players will be able to use Karma to purchase 64 customizable features for the Unknown Ninja used in multiplayer Clan Battles. Supporting up to eight players, five brand new Clan Battle stages have been added. Players can use all of Hayabusa’s weapons and Ninpo in Clan Battles, giving them access to their favorite methods of attack. The number of missions in Ninja Trials has been tripled to 100, and all four playable characters—Hayabusa, Ayane, Momiji, and Kasumi—can be used in this co-op mode.
Yeah, co-op. It’s awesome to see this feature starting to make a comeback in video games.
Look for a Wii U review to cut into our content programming early next week. Until then, here’s an awesome batch of screens to drool over.
